Iran’s Armed Forces are, independent of the global arrogance’s way of thinking, capable of responding to any kind and level of threat, said the commander of the Khatam al-Anbiya Central Headquarters.
Major General Gholam-Ali Rashid made the remarks in an address to a Saturday ceremony to mark the Sacred Defense Week (September 22-29), commemorating Iran’s eight-year heroic resistance against the Iraqi-imposed war (1980-88), IRNA reported.
He added today, the country’s Armed Forces can confront threats and invasions and overcome any crisis thanks to the way of thinking and method used by the Islamic Revolution Guards Corps (IRGC) and the Army, the techniques employed for training and equipping the military and security forces and the appropriate and effective defense policies adopted by the Islamic system.
Major General Rashid expressed satisfaction with the fact that Iran’s defense policies, doctrine and way of commanding in training and equipment sectors and the tactical and strategic fields are all homegrown and a result of the experiences gained by the country during the eight-year war.
The top commander said prior to the victory of Iran’s 1979 Islamic Revolution, the country’s Armed Forces used the American way of thinking and method, noting that at present, it has become evident that it is not possible to fight and win a war by means of the Americans’ way of thinking and method as the US Army collapsed in Iraq and Afghanistan by Daesh terrorist group and the Taliban respectively.
